Spiegelungen und Widerspiegelungen Exhibition
Discover the work of Michelangelo PistolettoJune 01st, 2018
Berlin’s Italian Institute of Culture presents a week of events entirely dedicated to Michelangelo Pistoletto, with a site-specific installation, an exhibition, a cinema projection, and two public meetings. Every year, the Italian Institute of Culture organizes Dedika, a series of events focused on a prominent character in the Italian cultural scene.
This year, the tribute will be dedicated to the Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto, who is considered one of the foremost artists of “Poor Art”. Specifically, his work reflects the changes in society within the last 50 years in politics and art. One of the key elements of his theoretical and philosophical reflections is his desire to combine art, society, and everyday life. Moreover, he always tries to actively engage the public in his works.
Berlin hosted the first exhibition of Michelangelo Pistoletto in 1978. After 40 years, the artist is coming back to introduce a selection of his works at the Italian Institute of Culture and the Italian Embassy in Berlin from the June 1st to June 4th. A new version of his work, the “Terzo paradiso,” will serve as a site-specific installation to be presented in the yard of the embass. It will be open the entire summer. Simultaneously, an exhibition including the most important works of the artist will take place at the Italian Institute of Culture.
Every Monday from June 4th to September 24th at 3 pm, the Italian Institute of Culture and the Italian Embassy will offer guided tours at the “Spiegelungen und Widerspiegelungen” exhibition.
Registration is requested by sending an e-mail (at least three days before indicating date of birth and number of identity document) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The guided tours will start at the entrance of the embassy in Hiroshimastrasse 1, 10875 Berlin and will not take place when institutional events are scheduled.
